I am a San Francisco Bay Area fine art photographer who uses the camera to capture a mood and visual experience usually associated with other visual art forms. In addition to traditional landscapes, I focus on natural and close-up images that emphasize shapes, textures, and patterns. Many of my images are reminiscent of impressionist, pastel, pointillist, and abstract paintings.
In addition to making images, I am also a photography instructor with the Yosemite Conservancy, and I tutor individuals and small groups on how to improve their photographic techniques, and on using Lightroom and Photoshop. Additionally, I conduct “shoot with a pro” field trips. You can find more of my images on my website: http://www.riccapics.com.
